PHP Paging

Recommended Posts

Was wondering if anyone may be able to help with a PHP paging issue? What I'm ultimately trying to do is very similar to the Coppermine photo gallery or Tiffany website... Basically, a table that displays an item image in the top left cell, item data across the right column cell... and then on the bottom, I want it to display the thumbnails for the first 3 results.

Here is the code that I am using :

[!--quoteo--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE[/div][div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--]<?
require "config123.php"; // Database connection details

$page_name="php_paging2.php"; // Document name

if(!isset($start)) { // This variable is set to zero for the first page
$start = 0;

$eu = ($start -0);
$limit = 1; // No of records to be shown per page.
$this = $eu + $limit;
$back = $eu - $limit;
$next = $eu + $limit;

/////////////// WE have to find out the number of records in our table. We will use this to break the pages///////
$query2=" SELECT * FROM art WHERE Size ='Small' ";
echo mysql_error();
/////// The variable nume above will store the total number of records in the table////

////////////// Now let us start executing the query with variables $eu and $limit set at the top of the page///////////
$query=" SELECT * FROM art Where Size ='Small' limit $eu, $limit ";
echo mysql_error();

//////////////// Now we will display the returned records in side the rows of the table/////////
while($noticia = mysql_fetch_array($result))

echo "<table width='590' border='5' cellpadding='2'><tr>";
echo "<td colspan='2' rowspan='7' align='center' valign='middle'><img src=\"$noticia[Thumbnail]\"></td>";
echo "<td height='57' valign='bottom'>Enlarged view</td></tr>";
echo "<tr><td width='181' height='57'>$noticia[Title]</td></tr>";
echo "<tr><td height='34' valign='top'>$noticia[Dimensions]</td></tr>";
echo "<tr><td height='33' valign='top'>$noticia[Medium]</td></tr>";
echo "<tr><td height'34' valign='top'>$$noticia[Price]</td></tr>";
echo "<tr><td height='51' align='right' valign='bottom'>Page 1 of whatever | 1-2-3- </td> </tr>";
echo "<tr> <td height='30'>&nbsp;</td> </tr>";
echo "<tr><td width='134' height='21' valign='top'><img src=\"$noticia[Thumbnail]\"></td>";
echo "<td width='191' valign='top'><img src=\"$noticia[Thumbnail]\"></td>";
echo "<td height='21' valign='top'><img src=\"$noticia[Thumbnail]\"></td></tr></table>";
////////////////////////////// End of displaying the table with records ////////////////////////

///// Variables set for advance paging///////////
$p_limit=5; // This should be more than $limit and set to a value for whick links to be breaked
//////////// End of variables for advance paging ///////////////
/////////////// Start the buttom links with Prev and next link with page numbers /////////////////
echo "<table align = 'center' width='50%'><tr><td align='left' width='20%'>";
if($p_f<>0){print "<a href='$page_name?start=$p_back&p_f=$p_back'><font face='Verdana' size='2'>PREV $p_limit</font></a>"; }
echo "</td><td align='left' width='10%'>";
//// if our variable $back is equal to 0 or more then only we will display the link to move back ////////
if($back >=0 and ($back >=$p_f)) {
print "<a href='$page_name?start=$back&p_f=$p_f'><font face='Verdana' size='2'>PREV</font></a>";
//////////////// Let us display the page links at center. We will not display the current page as a link ///////////
echo "</td><td align=center width='30%'>";
for($i=$p_f;$i < $nume and $i<($p_f+$p_limit);$i=$i+$limit){
if($i <> $eu){
echo " <a href='$page_name?start=$i&p_f=$p_f'><font face='Verdana' size='2'>$i</font></a> ";
else { echo "<font face='Verdana' size='4' color=red>$i</font>";} /// Current page is not displayed as link and given font color red


echo "</td><td align='right' width='10%'>";
///////////// If we are not in the last page then Next link will be displayed. Here we check that /////
if($this < $nume and $this <($p_f+$p_limit)) {
print "<a href='$page_name?start=$next&p_f=$p_f'><font face='Verdana' size='2'>NEXT</font></a>";}
echo "</td><td align='right' width='20%'>";
if($p_fwd < $nume){
print "<a href='$page_name?start=$p_fwd&p_f=$p_fwd'><font face='Verdana' size='2'>NEXT $p_limit</font></a>";
echo "</td></tr></table>";


you can see the results of this script at [a href=\"http://joyceabbe.com/php_paging2.php\" target=\"_blank\"]this link[/a]. Whenever I set the results to higher than 1 per page, it replicates the table once for each row of data queried...

Does anyone know how I can modify the code so that I can display the proper thumbnails in the 2rd and 3rd positions across? Ultimately, I want to make each thumbnail a link that loads the products data and image into the main data display of the table... while maintaining the pagination.

Thanks for any help that you can provide.
